Will Irving is a mid 20's private investigator and mechanical tinkerer who was gifted an automaton by his father, who has since left home after becoming heartbroken over the murder of his wife. Will now lives with his 10-year-old sister, Emily, and their automaton, Max. Having taken over the family P.I. business, along with his father's old partner, Hank, Will becomes inadvertently involved in a kidnapping case which pits him against a notorious mob boss, a mysterious automaton and its shadowy owner, and ultimately, an even greater menace. With the help of friends and family, Will and Max risk everything to protect the ones they love and solve the case.

This unique story serves up a genre mixture of noir detective mystery and science fiction and is set in a 1950's-like alternative history where automatons (i.e., robots) have recently been created and introduced to the world.

I saw in the summary where it says that there is a bit of sci-fi in it, which sounds very interesting! A mystery and sci-fi is a unique mix. 😺
